The Roughyeds


Late decision on Johnson

​FULL-BACK Kyran Johnson is keeping Oldham boss Scott Naylor waiting on his team-selection plans ahead of Sunday’s clash with Coventry Bears at the Vestacare Stadium (3pm kick-off).

The former Featherstone Rovers man picked up a shoulder injury in the defeat at Newcastle Thunder last time out and he is still having treatment.

He didn’t train on Tuesday night but Naylor is optimistic about his chances of proving his fitness in time for weekend.

“He should be okay, but we’ll look at him and assess him on Thursday night,”

said Naylor, who reported that Johnson was his only concern.

He confirmed, however, that he would be making changes following the Newcastle defeat in which Roughyeds led 18-6 until the last quarter of an hour when they fell apart.
Thunder stepped up the pace, threw caution to the wind and scored three converted tries in the last few minutes — two of them by pacy full-back Theerapol Ritson — to win 24-18.

Naylor’s squad was given last week off to recharge their batteries ahead of their last four games of the regular season against Coventry, York, Bradford and London Skolars.

Naylor has since paid tribute to the work of ORSA (Oldham Roughyeds Supporters Association) which funded a bonding session in a local restaurant after training on Tuesday.

Roary Competition

Young fans who took part in the competition to colour-in an outline of club mascot Roary are reminded than entries should be returned to the club at Sunday’s game.

The deadline is next Wednesday, September 5, and each entry must include name, age and contact number.

A box will be situated near the turnstiles at Sunday’s game, but anyone who can’t return entries by that method must have them into the office by Wednesday.

AS lockdown restrictions start to ease, now is the time for everyone connected with Oldham RLFC to do all they can to help with getting income from our Club Cash lottery back to where it was before the pandemic started to bite.

This is vital for the club and its finances which, as you all know, have taken a massive hit in the past 12 months.

Collectors will be returning to door-to-door visits in the next few weeks and we hope people who suspended payments will pick up where they left off as we strive and work hard to get back to where we were before the pandemic caused us to lose 50 per cent of our lottery income.

Many of our regular punters, who would normally pay a collector, have answered our calls for help by finding other ways to pay and to retain their chances of winning prizes.

To those people we are very grateful and we would like to take this opportunity to thank them once again for their loyal and continued support.

The lottery, of course, is potentially one of our biggest fund-raisers and for as little as £1 a week — more if you wish — you can help the club immensely and at the same time have chances to win £1,000, £100, £50, £25 or one of ten consolation prizes of £10.

That’s the present prize structure. There’s every chance it will be increased once we are out of lockdown, door-to-door collections start again and we get back to some sort of normality.

In the meantime you can join, or start up again, by contacting the club on 07904 898177 or by email to: enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk

For more information about the lottery, and for the “great opportunities” provided by our partnership with the National Youth and Community Development Association (NYCDA) go our Club Cash page.

There, you will find all the results and a detailed statement about getting back to normal with the help of our not-for-profit partners.

All proceeds from the partnership will continue to support the club and help us to meet the aims of our Club Cash activities, particularly in its aims and objectives to be an active stakeholder in the local community.
